Mauritius scraps PCR tests for vaccinated travellers, but...

Mauritius has relaxed its COVID-19 travel entry rules for international visitors.

Cabinet on Friday on 11 March decided that fully vaccinated foreign tourists no longer needed a negative COVID test within 72 hours before departure. They previously had to present a negative PCR test taken within 72 hours before departure.

Vaccinated travellers can enter Mauritius without needing to quarantine.

However, COVID-19 testing on arrival remains a requirement. So are proofs of health or travel insurance covering COVID-19 related expenses.

At least 14 days must have passed since the second dose of the vaccine. If a traveller has received a single dose of Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine, at least 28 days must have passed before travel.

Non-vaccinated arrivals face seven days in quarantine in accommodation of their choice.

Children aged 17 and under travelling with a parent or guardian do not need to show proof of vaccination to enter Mauritius.

However, the decision could be reviewed soon, according to Defi Media.

It cited virologists and the High- level Committee as arguing that the discovery of a new variant could trigger amendments to entry regulations anytime.
